Pokémon GO is one of the best location-based games available for both iOS and Android devices. Its user base keeps on growing, with many players aiming to become the best Pokemon trainer in the game.

You can use multiple Pokemons to help you in tasks, battles, or raids. However, you can't find all of them in a single location. Some Pokemons like Heracross are the regional type, meaning they can only be spawned in specific regions or places.

So if you're looking to capture every Pokemon in the game, you’ll need to travel a lot and to different parts of the world. However, if you're unable to leave your home or country for any reason, you can use a tool to change your device's location.

In this article, we are going to talk about a Pokemon called Heracross. Learn how to find the Pokemon and capture it. Follow our step-by-step guide to download a tool to change the location of your device. 

 Heracross in Pokémon GO

What is Heracross in Pokémon GO

Heracross is a regional bug and a fighting-type Pokemon. There are no evolutions of Heracross in Pokémon GO. It has vulnerability to fire, flying, fairy, and psychic moves.

So any Pokemon that has these types of moves are perfect against Heracross. It can use Megahorn and Counter as its strongest attack moves.

Heracross has the maximum combat power of 3101 CP. While there is a slim chance that you’ll encounter a shiny Heracross, you can use Moltres, Rayquaza, Braviary, Honchkrow, or Yveltal Pokemon to give yourself a chance of defeating him.

How to Catch Heracross in Pokémon GO

You can locate the regional type Pokemon, Heracross, in Southern Florida. Heracross is usually found in the wild near gyms, forests, gardens, and parks.

This Pokemon has a higher spawn rate in South America, so it is best to travel to the southern area of Latin America to catch it. Many Pokémon GO players have mentioned that the best place to encounter Heracross is either at the park or gym.

Another effective way to capture Heracross is through raids. You can join in a Heracross raid with a team of powerful trainers.

Heracross is a fighting-type Pokemon, and when encountered, it will attack you first. To defend its attack and weaken Heracross, it is best to choose a team of powerful Pokemons from your collection.

You can counter Heracross attacks by using a place-type Pokemon. So if you're in a gym or a park, use gym-specific or park-specific Pokemon to capture Heracross.

Using a place-specific Pokemon will increase your chances of successfully capturing Heracross without losing many Pokeballs.

If you don't have a place-specific Pokemon in your collection, then you can use any Pokemon that has a quick attack. Once you weaken and defeat Heracross, throw a raspberry to feed it.

Then, you can throw any one of your Pokeballs and capture it. Once you do, check whether Heracross was added to your Pokemon collection.

How to Get Heracross without Moving

Pokemon players living near Florida (United States) or São Paulo (Brazil) are in luck as they can go around parks, gyms, and the above-mentioned coordinates to catch Heracross. But what about players that live far away?

Can they actually capture Heracross without moving or going to Sao Paulo, Florida, or Texas? The answer is yes. You use a tool to move around the Pokémon GO world without leaving your place.

However, with the popularity of Pokémon GO among the Pokemon players and their need to capture all Pokemon, the use of spoofing tools has increased in recent times. Niantic, the developers of Pokémon GO, has taken notice of this.

Therefore, if you're caught using any of the tools to spoof location, then Niantic can temporarily ban your account. They've also started to crack down on fake GPS tools and release patches to fix the problem.

There are not many great options available that can help you spoof location in Pokémon GO. But if you're an iPhone user or have access to any iOS device, then there's a tool that can help you fake GPS location on your iOS device.

We recommend using MockGo tool to play Pokémon GO and travel to far away coordinates in the game without moving on your iOS device.

You can easily and safely change your location in the game with only a few clicks. There are many advantages of using the MockGo tool and it also has many great features, such as:

  1. Set up mock routes and simulate movement on multiple iPhones at the same time.
  2. Simulate cycling, driving, and walking at different speeds.
  3. Use the tool on multiple iPhones simultaneously to spoof location.
  4. Works on Pokémon GO and any other location-based games.

To play Pokémon GO from the comfort of your home with MockGo, follow the instructions below:

Step 1: Download and launch the program onto your computer. Next open the MockGo tool, and connect your iPhone or iPad.

Wrap Up

Pokémon GO is a fun game to play and capturing all of the Pokemon is a true player's dream. If you're looking to complete your Pokemon collection or are a fan of Heracross, then you have all the tools to capture it.

Use the MockGo tool to change your location to any of the above coordinates and encounter Heracross in Florida, Texas, or São Paulo. Then use berries and region-specific Pokemons to defeat and capture it.

When using the MockGo tool, it's best to select the appropriate speed when traveling from one location to another. For example, if you're living in the USA and want to travel to Florida or Texas, you can choose a car as the movement speed.

However, if you're nearby the location and for whatever reason don't want to leave the house, then you can use the walking movement speed. This way, you will be able to safely change your location and will not alert Niantic.

After closing the Pokémon GO app, it is advised to go back to your original location or to stop the simulation.
